Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
I have played both a 2000 '56 RI and a 2000 '57 RI recently and the necks felt identical to me. I should make one caveat though: the '57 I played was not a GT but had a nice butterscotch 'burst top on it which seems pretty rare since I was under the impression that the '57 RI was the GT, and '58 & '59 had the bursts. Go figure.
